National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Adams Oshiomhole, has admonished the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to put in place a strong security measures that would guarantee the safety of voters in Ekiti during Saturday’s Governorship Election.
The formed Edo State Governor stated this on Monday in Ekiti, while reacting to the deployment of 30,000 policemen to the state for the July 14 Governorship Election.
He called for calm and assured the people that there won’t be breakdown of law and order during the election procedure
“We shouldn’t worry about how many officers are deployed. I think we should all pray that however people are deployed, that in the end we are not counting dead bodies.
“My experience in Edo as governor is that you will hear stories of how many officers are deployed, but in the end, you will find no policemen. I have seen that in Edo.
“The important thing is that regardless of what the police chooses to do, regardless of the number they choose to deploy, let us ensure that those who are going to vote are safe and that the votes cast are secured,“ he said.
